Princess For Hire

Uh, no. Before you get any big ideas...... our Princess isn't for hire, nor are we looking to hire a Princess LOL. BUT since this is a site about all things Princessy and lots of you have little princesses who would enjoy this type of thing, I just have to take a little break from hairstyling and tell you about a cute book I've read recently:

princess for hire by lindsey leavittLindsey (the talented author) just happens to be my cousin! Well ok, she's actually married to my cousin. But I'll claim she is MY actual cousin because that makes me sound more cool. :) I guess we just have a thing for princesses in this family! Anyway, her book "Princess For Hire" was recently published by Disney Hyperion. And, I've heard a rumor that Disney may even make this book into a movie. See, now THAT is cool!!

I was able to get my hands on a copy to read a few weeks ago and I have to say, I loved it! It's geared towards the YA audience, but I would say most girls (even adults) over the age of about 10-11 would love it. It's a fun read and actually not what I expected at all. I won't spill the beans and give away the plot or anything. But, if you or your girls are looking for a fun and uplifting book to read over the summer, I would recommend it. (And not just because I'm sorta related to the author.)

I'm pretty sure you can find this book in most book stores. I saw it in our local "Barnes and Noble" the other day. Or there are links to purchase it on the Princess For Hire website.
